Conversion of units is important as it helps one change the units into the units they know best and able to work with comfortably.
Both square feet(ft²) and square meters(m²) are units of area.
Formula to convert square feet to square meters.
Since we already know we are dealing with units of area, we will first need to know the relationship between their units of length which are a foot and a meter.
1 ft = 0.3048 m
Therefore, in order to get the units of area, we square the units of length.
1ft² = (0.3048m)²
Therefore, 1ft² = 0.09290304m²
In conclusion, when converting ft² to m² , we multiply the area in feet by 0.09290304.
Area in M = Area in Ft x 0.0929
Convert 12 ft² to meters.
= 12 x 0.0929
= 1.1148 m²
